I am so excited for this week’s episode with Rob Howe! Rob was one of my very first online diabetes friend turned real-life friend. Fun fact: Rob’s podcast was one of the first I ever got invited to speak on and share my story about living with diabetes back in 2016.
If you don’t know Rob, he was diagnosed with type one at the age of 16. He founded his podcast Diabetics Doing Things in 2015 and now has over 1.8 million downloads in 70 countries. He is also the co-founder of Recreation Dallas and a former professional basketball player.
In this episode we discuss...
- What strategies Rob uses to manage his blood sugar when he plays basketball
- How his mindset perspective on “borrowed time” has impacted his perspective on life with T1D
- How he's eased up a little over the years on the pressure of needing perfect blood sugar numbers
- What go-to daily habits that support him in his active, ambitious life
- PLUS - we recorded this on 3/1 so we got to discuss the news of Eli Lilly capping the cost of insulin
